OOTD | Lets make fireworks











I recently went to the Plymouth Firework Championships with some friends,
the displays where beautiful, the had smiley face fireworks - eep!
Although, I forgot my blooming camera, after ensuring I charge it and clear my SD card, I was gutted.
I live close enough to run back for it, but I know i'd loose everyone in the thousands of people creating the crowds.
There was a great little fair, me and the girls went on the sizzler, I could stop laughing!
I played "hook-a-dalmation" and won a super cute fuzzy duck!

I really struggled what to wear. I hate jeans, they really don't flatter me and I find them uncomfy, but its getting cold on the night and a summer dress didn't seem a good option.

I have a figure that means I just CANNOT find jeans that fit me - like anywhere.
My hips are to big in comparison so my waist/hips, and my legs are quite funny shaped and they alsways feel way to low and always seem to be riding down my thighs,
Jean rant over.

So these Topshop Jeggings met me somewhere in the middle.
They're actually a bit big for me now - yey! So I may have to invest in a new pair soon.
But they kept me warm and comfortable.
This vintage printed piece from MOO (a vintage shop) in Birmingham..
I turned the sleeves up as I feel this brings that vintage shirt look a modern flare.

I originally popped some neon jewellery with this, but then played it a little safer afterwards, I didn't want to deduct from this beautiful print!

Teamed with my biker jacket it worked really well.
I like it tucked into - but I don't know if this works with jeggings?

  1. This shirt is adorable I love it!
    I know how you feel about jeans not fitting! I have massive thighs and skinny ankles so they just don't work... Have you tried the Jamie Jean at Topshop? Of you get those in a size down, they stretch to fit :)
